The Department of Veterans Affairs has become the first federal agency to require some employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19. According to the 
New York Times, the requirement will apply to roughly 115,000 frontline health workers. Those workers include nurses, doctors, physician assistants, and specialists who may come in close contact with patients.
"We're mandating vaccines for Title 38 employees because it's the best way to keep Veterans safe, especially as the Delta variant spreads across the country," Secretary of Veterans Affairs 
Denis McDonough said in a press release. "Whenever a Veteran or VA employee sets foot in a VA facility, they deserve to know that we have done everything in our power to protect them from COVID-19. With this mandate, we can once again make — and keep — that fundamental promise."

“It’s the best way to keep veterans safe, especially as the Delta variant spreads across the country,” said VA Secretary Denis McDonough.
The Veterans Affairs Department announced on Monday it will require all frontline healthcare workers to get vaccinated, making it the first federal agency to issue any sort of coronavirus vaccine mandate. 
The mandate will apply to Title 38 health care employees who work in Veterans Health Administration facilities, visit the facilities or provide direct care to individuals the VA serves. The order covers about 115,000 employees, according to
Government Executive reported last year about the vast health and safety issues VA employees were facing in the beginning of the pandemic.

Luxury Meets History at Vermont’s Elegant Woodstock Inn & Resort, One of New England’s Best
Woodstock Inn & Resort
Woodstock, Vermont is widely recognized as one of the prettiest small towns in America, and is certainly one of the true gems of New England. And the stately Woodstock Inn has presided over the picturesque village in one form or another for 130 years. The 142-room, AAA Four Diamond Resort, a member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts LVX Collection, as well as the Historic Hotels of America, has evolved into a world-class resort in recent years without losing any of its charm or character. And the level of interior design, blending the historic contemporary rustic luxury, is on a higher level than comparable properties in New England.

Pat Sajak 'Heard Very High-Level Secrets' At Pentagon

Pat Sajak has hosted
Wheel of Fortune. He's made quite a career for himself since replacing
Chuck Woolery on the game show in 1981. Pat has won three Emmys, been nominated for 19, and hosted over 7,000 episodes of the show. However, Sajak hasn't only been a game show host - before his work on
Wheel, the Chicago-born Sajak had many other jobs.
Pat first worked at a local radio station while in college, giving an hourly news briefing in English during the overnight show, which happened to be in Spanish. From there, he enlisted in the Army and was made a finance clerk in Vietnam, just before the war there began. He was able to get himself transferred to Saigon, where he got a job back on the radio, becoming what he called the "Good Morning Vietnam" guy. He spent a year and a half doing that, then was assigned to a base in Texas, but after some time there, he got his superiors to change his orders and he was sent to the Pentagon.

Project seeking UFOs and alien civilizations to be led by Harvard

Some of our questions about the existence of UFOs and extraterrestrial civilizations could be answered by a new international research project led by Harvard University.
The Galileo Project, led by Harvard astronomy professor Avi Loeb, will search for a record of alien civilizations capable of technology surpassing what we know on Earth. It will use telescope observations, missions that send cameras into space and more..
"Given the recently discovered abundance of Earth-Sun systems, the Galileo Project is dedicated to the proposition that humans can no longer ignore the possible existence of Extraterrestrial Technological Civilizations (ETCs)," the team said in a statement. 

Britney Spears' lawyer seeks conservator to replace singer's father -NY Times

By Syndicated Content
Jul 26, 2021 | 5:23 PM
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – An attorney for Britney Spears asked a Los Angeles court to name a new conservator to oversee the pop singer’s finances following recent testimony that she wanted her father ousted from the role, the New York Times reported on Monday.
In a court filing, lawyer Matthew Rosengart requested that accountant Jason Rubin be named the conservator of Spears’ estate, a post currently held by her father, Jamie Spears, the Times reported.
The newspaper said that Rosengart also filed a petition to remove Jamie Spears as a conservator but that document was not made public.

The architect responsible for designing the Miami-Dade County condominium that collapsed last month was previously suspended for designing other structures that toppled.
Documents from the Florida State Board of Architecture obtained by
the Real Deal, a South Florida real estate news outlet, said that sign pylons were "an integral part of the structure" of a Miami commercial building that collapsed during a 1965 hurricane built by
William Friedman, the same architect who designed the the Champlain Towers South condominium.
The documents stated that pylons were "insufficient and grossly inadequate" in withstanding the high wind pressure brought on by hurricanes -- which are frequent to the region -- and not in accordance with building code for the location or "to accept standards of architectural practice" in the board's decision to suspend Friedman.

Britney Spears Files to Oust Father Jamie Spears From Conservatorship

Britney Spears’ lawyer filed legal documents today petitioning to terminate her father’s position as conservator of her estate,
The New York Times reports. Her new lawyer Mathew Rosengart filed paperwork to replace Jamie Spears with certified public accountant Jason Rubin. The move comes after Spears claimed in court that she wasn’t aware she could petition to have the conservatorship terminated.
Spears’ father James “Jamie” Spears enacted the conservatorship in 2008. Britney Spears had been pushing for an end to the restrictions since 2014, according to a report that was released in June. Her fans had also rallied against the conservatorship for years with the #FreeBritney movement. Following her previous lawyer Sam Ingham III’s resignation, Bessemer Trust—the wealth-management firm that served as co-conservator of Spears’ estate alongside Jamie Spears, requested to withdraw from the conservatorship. 

United States VA Mandates COVID Vaccine for All Medical Employees

United States VA Mandates COVID Vaccine for All Medical Employees
We have seen many recent COVID-19 mandates from businesses and health providers including in the Sioux Empire with Sanford Health making the announcement last week.
You can add another local health provider to that list as nationally the VA announced on Monday that they would be requiring the COVID-19 vaccines for all medical employees meaning the VA located in Sioux Falls will abide by those requirements as well.
The New York Times reports that those included in the list of medical employees will be "doctors, dentists, registered nurses, physician assistants, and some specialists."

More than 50 major health care groups have issued a joint statement calling for all health care and long-term care employers to issue a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all employees.
CNN reports the joint statement -- which includes the American Medical Association, the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Public Health Association -- was issued in response to continued surges of COVID-19 cases nationwide.
"Our health care organizations and societies advocate that all health care and long-term care employers require their workers to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. This is the logical fulfillment of the ethical commitment of all health care workers to put patients as well as residents of long-term care facilities first and take all steps necessary to ensure their health and well-being," the joint statement issued Monday (July 26) reads via

'다음 팬데믹 대비하자'…파우치, 백신 선개발 추진

'다음 팬데믹 대비하자'…파우치, 백신 선개발 추진
"차기 대유행 일으킬 후보 바이러스 20종에 대한 프로토타입 백신 필요"
기사입력 2021.07.27. 08:08:40
미국의 전염병 최고 권위자인 앤서니 파우치 국립알레르기·전염병연구소(NIAID) 소장이 다음 팬데믹(전염병의 세계적 대유행)에 대비한 백신 선개발 프로젝트를 추진 중이라고 뉴욕타임스(NYT)가 26일(현지시간) 보도했다.
이미 다년간 연구가 진행된 코로나바이러스가 아닌 라사열, 에볼라, 니파바이러스 등 다른 병원체가 갑자기 대유행할 가능성에 대비해 20여 종의 바이러스에 대한 프로토타입 백신을 미리 만들겠다는 구상이다.
바이러스들의 분자구조를 파악하고, 항체를 분리해 바이러스에 어떻게 결합하는지를 알아낼 수 있는 기술이 개발됨에 따라 이러한 프로젝트가 가능해졌다는 것이다.
새로운 바이러스가 동물로부터 인간으로 전염되는 것을 포착할 경우 미리 개발한 프로토타입 백신을 신속히 생산함으로써 조기에 유행을 차단할 수 있다고 파우치 소장 등은 예상한다.
매년 수십억 달러의 비용이 들어가는 이 프로젝트가 첫 성과물을 내놓기까지 5년이 걸릴 전망이다.
파우치 소장은 NYT에 "예산을 확보한다면 2022년부터 시작될 것"이라면서 다른 바이러스들에 대한 백신 선개발 추진과 관련해 "백악관은 물론 다른 기관들과 논의 중"이라고 말했다.
NIAID가 대부분의 재정을 지원할 것으로 보이지만, 의회로부터 추가 예산을 배정받을 필요가 있다고 NYT는 지적했다.
이 프로젝트는 바니 그레이엄 NIAID 백신연구센터 부국장이 지난 2017년 2월 내부 회의에서 처음 제시했다.
2009년 신종플루, 2012년 치쿤구니야, 2013년 메르스, 2014년 에볼라, 2016년 지카 등 끊임없는 바이러스 유행 끝에 나온 구상이었으나 처음에는 전폭적인 지지를 얻지 못했다.
신종 코로나바이러스 감염증(코로나19) 사태를 계기로 되살아난 이 프로젝트를 위해 NIAID는 바이러스 20종 각각의 구조와 취약점에 대해 알려진 내용을 정리한 스프레드시트를 만들었다고 연구소는 밝혔다.
또 민간 제약사들과도 프로토타입 백신의 신속 생산을 위한 공동 협약을 체결할 방침이라고 파우치 소장은 전했다.
그는 20종의 바이러스 가운데 10종에 대한 프로토타입 백신이 첫 5년간 개발될 수 있을 것으로 기대하면서 "아주 많은 돈이 필요하지만 불가능한 일은 아니다"고 말했다.

Conservative radio host regrets vaccine skepticism after being hospitalized with serious COVID-19 Back to video
“He is positive and he is scared,” his brother Mark Valentine told the Tennessean. “He knows he is very, very sick.”
Shortly after being diagnosed, Valentine had initially dismissed his positive test result, telling his brother that he was already feeling better.
He said, ‘I don’t think it’s going to be a big deal,'”  Mark told The Washington Post on Sunday. “I frankly quit worrying about it.”
